Does your child have a friend, family member, or classmate who has autism? Would you like your child or the children in your classroom to understand more about autism? Are you looking for an engaging way to start a dialogue about autism? This book uses a simple ABC format to teach about autism. This book teaches, from a child's perspective, the typical traits that many people with autism share. Encourage discussions of how you or people you love might be like the child in this book. You might compare and contrast how the child in this book is similar or different from a person you know on the spectrum. This book provides wonderful opportunities to discuss how to be a friend of a child with autism. The simple action plan at the conclusion of the book will help give guidance to a child who wants to be a friend of someone on the autistic spectrum. As a pediatric physical therapist, I work with many children on the spectrum. I often see misinformation about autism and well-meaning, but misguided, attempts to interact with people on the spectrum. I believe knowledge helps break down barriers and encourages kindness and patience. Helping children understand autism at a young age is powerful. Listening to this book will change the life of your child and the lives of people on the autistic spectrum that your child meets now and in the future.
I purchased this audio book to open the discussion of autism with my daughter - to help her (as well as myself) understand her little brother better.
Jack did a fantastic job bringing this book to life & keeping us engaged 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
